Pathogenic priming likely contributes to serious and critical illness and mortality in COVID-19 via autoimmunity

Pathogenic priming is described when vaccines facilitate greater infection rather than stop illnesses. Exposure to specific peptides – via either infection or vaccination – might prime patients for increased risk of enhanced pathogenicity during future exposure due either to future pandemic or outbreaks or via universal vaccination.
